description below)


Have you wondered about how GoogleEarth works? Are you interested in
all the new mapping mashups appearing on the web in the past two
years? Do you want to learn more about geospatial software, but don't
want to spend too much money?

We are thrilled and honored to welcome Robert Cheetham as the guest
speaker at our October 28th meeting. Robert is the founder and
president of Avencia Incorporated (www.avencia.com), a software design
and development firm based in Philadelphia. Avencia develops
geospatial analysis tools and services for government, non-profit,
commercial and research organizations. Robert has more than 10 years
of experience developing web-based geospatial software.

Robert will present an introduction to Geographic Information Systems
(GIS), a history of the field as well as overview of the major open
source GIS software projects.

Here at Make Philly we want to be sure that every kid that knocks on a
door this Halloween gets some candy. That is, even if you are out of
the house. Our Maker Challenge this time is to build a Candy Delivery
System that can automatically deliver candy in your absence. The
objective of this Make Challenge will be to build a device that
automatically delivers the most candy to a cardboard cutout kid!
